Owl Portraits

I love owls, and all kinds of other fowl. There is a park in Jackson, TN called Cyprus Cove which houses several wild birds who were injured and unable to return to the wild. Included are an eagle (can’t remember if it’s bald or golden), Baker’s Hawks, Cooper Hawks, Red-tailed Hawks, and a few different types of owls. There is no entry fee to this park and the wooden plank walkways meander across marshland in different directions, culminating at a juncture with a lookout tower. Another fork leads back to the parking lot. Hope you enjoy these photos as much as I do. Reblogged from https://alk3r.wordpress.com

Minimal Animal Photography

I told you there would be more. Some of these creatures are unknown and therefore unidentifiable to me, but they are all interesting. Proof that God has a sense of humor. Look what He did with our personalities as people! Reblogged from https://alk3r.wordpress.com

Photographer Tim Flach has found that over the years his work has become increasingly focused upon animals. He captures a wide range of species but his style is always distinctive. He is particularly interested in how we shape an animals image, whether that be through genetic modification or just the symbolism and meaning a particular animal holds to us.

The Bohemian Apartment

What a creative way to utilize limited space to the most aesthetic appeal! Only concern is the bedroom for little children. Won’t work too well once they start growing up and need more space. Still, pretty cool digs! Reblogged from https://alk3r.wordpress.com

The Purple People Eater Corvette

Back to nostalgia. I am old enough to have laughed as I sang “The Purple People Eater.” Until now, however, I never knew there had been a car designed and named after the song. This is a great piece of trivia history, or maybe not so trivial. Reblogged from https://alk3r.wordpress.com
